Healthy Church Fundamentals - Forgiving One Another

March 7, 2023

Do you consider your church to be “healthy”? There are certainly signs to be looking out for that would indicate an unhealthy church, and one of them is a lack of forgiveness. Let’s face it - no matter how we might try to avoid it - we are going to do something that hurts another. By word or by action, we offend one another - and we need to be forgiven.

There are several phrases that us human beings find difficult to say. “I’m sorry” is a tough one for a lot of people, and another one is “I forgive you”. That will be pastor Al’s focus today - forgiving one another. When you think about it, if we as a church body were stubbornly refusing to forgive each other, it would make for a very strange meeting every Sunday morning, wouldn’t it?

The greater you value something, the greater you’ll take care of it. If that’s really true, then It’s very telling that there’s such little regard for the Church whom Jesus gave His life for.  So we who love the church ought to care for it and also protect it - especially in light of the very real dangers the church is exposed to in these days of persecution.  We’ll learn more about that today on The Dwelling Place

There is no question that our nation is headed in the wrong direction, spiritually and morally. It was once said that if God doesn’t judge our country for our moral depravity, He owes Sodom and Gomorrah an apology. How can our nation be healed? Let’s explore that question with pastor Al, on today’s edition of the Dwelling Place.

To be spiritually minded does not require you to be impractical and mystical. But it does mean you look at the things of this life from heaven’s point of view. Doing so allows you to think more clearly and be more effective in your calling, and that’s our subject today on The Dwelling Place with Pastor Al Pittman.

We have a timely and thought provoking message to bring you today, as pastor Al  shares ways we can heal our nation. Heal it from what? Well, there are people who think everything is just hunky-dory these days, but there are also a lot of people who rightfully believe this nation is headed for destruction. Rampant sin is now celebrated in the media. People with a biblical world view are labeled as intolerant bigots. What happened and what can we do about it?

About Al Pittman

Al was born in Panama City, Florida in 1955. His father was a career soldier, so the family traveled extensively. In 1973, when Al was seventeen years old, the family returned from a tour in Germany and settled in Colorado Springs. Soon after, Al realized God’s call on  his life and began serving in the music ministry as a bass guitarist with a Christian band  called, “The Rays of Light.” It was during this time that Al met Norma, and they were married on July 19, 1975. 

Al attended Nazarene Bible College in Colorado Springs, graduating in 1977 with a degree in Biblical Studies. In 1991 Al and his family moved to Albuquerque, New Mexico, and two years later he joined the staff of Calvary Chapel Albuquerque as an assistant pastor and co-worship leader. In the spring of 1997 the Lord called Al and his family back to Colorado Springs to pastor Calvary Worship Center. In 2006, Al earned his Master’s degree and in 2012 he earned his Doctorate degree in Ministry from Trinity Southwest University in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Al and Norma are the proud parents of three children, Renee, Nathan and Reggie, as well as proud grandparents.
